The last Thursday Night Football game of the year is going to be a dud of a game in all likelihood, as we really don’t think that the Bengals or the Eagles are all that great. However, with a gun to our head and a decision to be made, we think that the Cincinnati defense is going to have enough shine. QB Nick Foles caught lightning in a bottle last week, and he threw for over 380 yards on a bad Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ secondary. It was also his only multi-touchdown game of his career after throwing just a total of two TDs in his first four outings. The Eagles haven’t forced a turnover in over a month, and the team only has three INTs since picking off QB Brandon Weeden four times in the opening game of the campaign. WR AJ Green hasn’t visited the end zone in three straight games, and he is due to get back there. With as porous against top receivers as the Eagles have been this year – and we saw that last week as well against WR Vincent Jackson – this could be a one-sided game from the get go. The fans are going to turn against this team in a heartbeat for sure.
Bengals @ Eagles Pick: Cincinnati Bengals -4.5
Cincinnati @ Philadelphia Score Prediction: Cincinnati 28 – Philadelphia 17
